How does BikeMi work?
Once you sign in to the service and pay you will receive a code. With the code provided you will unlock a bike, use it and put it back in any station when you’re done. Repeat whenever you need. It’s very simple and, being Milan so small and flat, is much better than the motorised public transport, weather permitting.
Remember: you need to return the bike within 2 hours, after which you can just pick another one. If you exceed this time limit for three times your account will be suspended.
The service is active from 7am to midnight, after that it’s only possible to return a bike, not pick it up.
If there are no slot where to return a bike or there are no bikes to pick up you can type the code on the column and the nearest available station will be shown.
How much is it?
- Daily (24 hours): €4.50
- Weekly: €9.00
- Annual: €36.00
As you can see 24 hours or a week on a shared bike costs as much as the public transport pass.
How to get a shared bike?
You can subscribe online, which is by far the most convenient way to do it. Alternatively you can call the free-toll number: 800 80 81 81 or go to an ATM points (ATM being the public transport company of Milan) open from Monday to Saturday, 7.45am – 7.15pm at these stations:
Cadorna Triennale M1-M2
What do you need?
To make your experience smoother I would suggest to subscribe ahead. Also make sure you know where the bike stations are: there is an online map, or you can use Citymapper.
Free Floating Bike Sharing
Walking around Milan you can see some bikes scattered along the pavements, these are the Mobike and Ofo bikes. These two companies can be found everywhere in the city and can be picked up and dropped off wherever you like.
Install their apps and use it to look for the closest bike and to unlock it, you will then be charged €0.50 for each half hour of use. This makes these bikes more convenient for an occasional use: you will need more than 9 half hour rides in a day to make bikeMi more convenient.
